Searching For Ralph

February 24, 2015

But not any more. Found him in The Buckeye State.

Received an email from Boston Ralph’s sister. She wished to contact him. I knew he left the tour went to Ohio in 2009. Boris got him a caddie job at Fairlawn Country Club but that was the last anyone heard.

I searched my phone and still had Boris’ number. Talked to him today and found out Ralph is still there.

Gives me a warm feeling inside knowing I could help. Then again, it could be the chili I had for lunch.

My Lips Are Sealed

February 22, 2015

Caddied for a famous singer and his sax player the other day. Not allowed to mention his name. Nice guy and a decent stick. Only made it sixteen holes. Play backed up and a chill set in.

Global Warming Is Real

February 17, 2015

It was a hot one in Poplarville MS, or so it seems. Here’s a screenshot on my Nexus 7 from the Weather Underground weather app a few days ago. Pity the poor Poplarville Polar bears.

Dead battery this morning. The good news was that the course was closed and I had the day off. The bad news that it was two weeks out of warrantee for free replacement. It was prorated instead and cost me $40 at Sam’s.

Gearing Up

February 16, 2015

The tournament trailers have arrived for the  2015 MGRC. Anytime now, erection of the remaining infrastructure is about to begin. It’s going to get a little noisy around here.


$150 vomit charge – Spotted that notice stenciled on a taxi that dropped-off one of our guests. How exactly does the driver collect if you barf in his cab?

Caddied for a single yesterday. He mentioned that West Virginia was his sate of birth which immediately evoked memories of the LPGA stop at Olgebay Park in Wheeling. Turned out he played his high school golf at the same course.

What A Payday!
